Question about Fellowes DM8C Cross-Cut Shredder
Check that there is still power to your outlet by plugging in something else.
Make sure that your shredder is properly and completely seated on your waste receptacle. There is a switch in the notch that prevents the shredder's running if it doesn't make contact. With the shredder unplugged, you might need to look up into the notch to make sure that there idn't anything in there that might prevent the switch from making good contact.
Work the switch from forward to reverse and back.
This should get you going.

Shut off the shredder. Unplug it and let in cool down for up to one hour. This will work if the shredder has stopped due to excessive use.
Check to see if the shredder is jammed. This is the most common cause of shredder problems. Click the power switch to reverse, which should clear a minor jam. If not, set the shredder to auto, and then to reverse again until the jam clears.
Clear extremely stubborn paper jams by grabbing the stuck paper and gently pulling it out. If smaller pieces of paper cause the jam, shut off the shredder and unplug it. When it cools down, carefully use a pair of tweezers to remove the paper bits.
Determine if the power supply to the shredder is working properly. If the power supply is cold, use an alternative source of electricity for your shredder. If it is warm, there may be a problem with the shredder itself. Call your office machine repair shop or the shredder manufacturer for assistance.
Sharpen or oil the blades. Shredder blades need to be oiled on a regular basis to keep your machine in proper working order. Get oil made specifically for shredder blades from an office supply store.
